Tropical Wreath


I stamped the three flowers in Crushed Curry Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used their die, from In The Tropics, for cutting. Then, I blended the lines together by using an Aqua Painter.

TIP: Since I didn’t use Watercolor Paper, my Aqua Painter was barely wet. I achieved this by holding the flower and brush upright.

The background was also made with the help of an Aqua Painter. I let the brush get wet this time, soaked it in Night Of Navy Ink, and tapped it onto the Whisper White Cardstock. 

TIP: My Cardstock was placed in my laundry room sink, so I didn’t have to worry about stray splatters. And, I didn’t overdo it, because this isn’t Watercolor Paper.


Next, I cut the “wreath” from Garden Green Cardstock, using a Painted Labels Die. A Layering Circles Die was used to remove the middle.

After deciding the arrangement of my flowers, I stamped three leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink. I used the same Aqua Painter, blending method, as with the flowers.


“Thank you” is from the same stamp set, which I stamped in Night of Navy Ink.

Finally, I placed the flowers on Dimensionals, and added tiny, Iridescent Sequins, to their centers.



My color combination is from the Global Design Project challenge.
